Congratulations on the new venue – very cool way to open up.

Good luck!

I think your news item headline is misleading. When I read “marathon” I interpreted it to mean you would be screening several or all of the STAR TREK movies and not just an all day run of the new movie.

Congrats on the grand opening.

Yeah, that’s what I thought too at first. It’s not a marathon, it’s just that they’re running the film overnight.

But we need some pictures. It’s strange the Website has no pictures of the theater, just clip art. I’d like to see what it looks like both inside and outside.

30 hours of star trek is pale compared with watching 700+ hours of Star Trek related movies, TV shows, and the cartoon!!!

Thats the kind of screen that makes me want to go to a theatre

How’d it go? You picked a good movie and you’ve got some nice publicity about the opening, so I hope it’s been a success for you.

$10 for an IMAX ticket? No way. I paid more than that for DLP! GRRR! The AMC IMAX-lite venues charge at least $14 and up depending on the market. I wish this theater were closer to me..at least in Virginia.

Great news, glad to hear it.

I saw Star Trek only once at the AMC in Rockaway. I’ll see it again when it comes out on Bluray.
